What a difference 40 years makes.
Jean phones her friends with the most amazing news. Her brother and his roommate from college are coming to town for a vixit! Jean and her friends think this calls for a celebration of the highest magnitude, so they put together a humdinger of a party. They plan it.. Invitations! Refreshments! (because, as Jean enthuses, "we have to feed the MEN!: And Jean also ends this conversation with this, "Well, we want something to eat and something to drink.. Refreshments!"). and Entertainment is also discussed, "We want to show Steve a good time, but we don't know what he really likes!" one of the girls says, pawing her teddy bear. The girls all decide to play mixer games! Soon, the party is underway! They have hat designing contests, guessing games, rhythym games and charades! Now, again, these are COLLEGE students we're talking about here, not 6 year old kids. Soon the whole thing gets out of control when the narrator states that one of the guests has some spontaneous unplanned fun, and plays "Jimmy Crack Corn" on the piano! Oh! The kids of today! Such rebelness!!! (runs from room)
